Drones may be commonplace now, but just like anything else they need to be in the hands of masters before things REALLY start to cook. This video creation from 'Photos By Meem' based out of Oswego was submitted to the NYS Fair Drone Film Festival and received the Gold Medal for it's category. It showcases scenery and points of interest all over the state and if it's difficult to get away and visit them often, this is the best view that we've seen...
